Breadcrumb, a division of Groupon, has launched a comprehensive overnight emergency parts replacement service and extended warranty plan for restaurants and bars that use the iPad POS system – AirLift. It protects businesses for a period of two years by getting them back up and running again with hassle-free part replacement for accidental damage and hardware defects, according to a company press release. Breadcrumb already provides one year of free coverage on basic manufacturing defects.
For an extra fee of about $100 per terminal purchased from the Breadbox store, AirLift provides a low-cost option for businesses to protect their mission-critical equipment.
Highlights of AirLift, according to Breadcrumb's founder, Seth Harris, include:
- Affordable Pricing: Costs hundreds of dollars less than similar plans and services from other POS providers
- Emergency Parts Replacement: Offers overnight shipping on replacement parts at no additional cost
- Everything Included: Covers all parts under the same warranty agreement, with the ability to replace the same part multiple times
- Accidental Damage Coverage – Protects expensive POS equipment against cracked screens and water damage — essential for restaurant environments (accidental damage claims require a $50 deductible)
"We're committed to providing our food and beverage clients with the equipment, infrastructure and 24/7 support they need for a critical piece of their business," Harris said.
